  • Great place to visit. Staff are very knowledgeable and present the museum in a very fun and informative way.
  • Fantastic museum. The tour was excellent. 3 different guides each did a section and all were very knowledgeable about the subject and very willing to answer any questions. Highly recommended.
  • A wonderful experience. We (just 60 couple ) visited Oct 2013. Gotta say the most magic aspect was that the volunteers were able to connect with the history of the mining with real anecdotes from their childhood but also from their ancestors who had worked in the mine. Life must have been tough. Such details bring the visit to life. Have a look at the 'accident record book' which is on display. Seems there were mishaps every day. Broken fingers, crushed feet and even a death. Thank you for an interesting visit.
  • Brilliant place to visit. You get an hour and a halfs tour. Lead by three different volunteers. Who were all were really passionate about the mine and really knowledgeable. First you go through the museum, which has a collection of maps, photographs, old helmets, lanterns, iron stone nodules and even a mounted horse, which kids love. From learning about those and air ventilation we are passed on too volunteer two. Who sits us down in the tally cabin and explains why the men had tallies and more whilst going down the shaft. It's not far, but I would recommend shoes rather than sandals. Best bit afterwards was being put in the dark room, where of listened to a story about Fred a trappy boy on his first day. The third volunteer came and we went down a created tunnel, showing us how to dig, and blow up the walls of the mine to get the stone out. Fantastic. Both adults and the kids enjoyed it. Really recommend it as great value for money. If you gift aid, then it becomes a year pass. Bargain. Will be back for some of their special events later on in the year.
